Why Should I Get Chimney Cleaning in Gaithersburg, MD?
When wood burns, it creates a build-up of a highly flammable byproduct called creosote in your chimney. Creosote build-up can reduce your fireplace efficiency and also cause chimney fires. Soot and other debris can also cause blockages in your chimney and reduce fireplace efficiency.
In order to determine if your chimney needs cleaning, check the inside of your chimney with a flashlight once a month to assess the amount of creosote and soot buildup. If you notice a 1/8 inch or more of buildup, contact Capitol Chimney Service for chimney cleaning in Gaithersburg, MD today.
